SeaFEM is a suite of tools for the computational analysis of the effect of waves, wind and currents on naval and offshore structures, as well as for maneuvering studies. SeaFEM applications include ships, spar platforms, FPSO systems, semi- submersibles, TLPs, marine wind turbines and ocean energy harnessing devices.
SeaFEM offers a state of the art solver developed for the most realistic seakeeping simulations of 3D multi-body radiation and diffraction problems, by solving potential flow equations in the time domain, using the finite element method on unstructured meshes. SeaFEM features the latest technology for solving first and second order diffraction-radiation equations with real sea spectra.
SeaFEM has been developed in collaboration with the International Center for Numerical Methods in Engineering, and is completely integrated in the comprehensive simulation environment, Tdyn, developed by Compass.
